Freeze-Dried Kefir Starter 5 5 5 6
Worked Great! I made kefir with this and it turned out great! It tastes so much better than store bought kefir! November 2, 2014
I love this kefir starter! But see my suggestion! I love Yogourmet Kefir Starter. You can make a half-gallon of kefir in Yogourmet's batch container, and it will cost less than the quart you would buy ready-made. My husband and I enjoy it for dessert with cut-up fruit and nuts mixed in, or plain as a quick drink. We also use it in all kinds of smoothies for a great protein addition. SUGGESTION: Although the instructions say that you can make it by just leaving it on the counter without using an electric yogurt maker, it doesn't always work. Sometimes it's still just milk and starter. I bought Yogourmet's half-gallon electric yogurt maker. I put the kefir/milk mixture in it for 12 hours, then leave it on the counter for 4 more hours, and then chill it. Since I started doing that two years ago, it always, always turns into perfect kefir. Never a failure. I recommend that method! September 25, 2014
I love kefir! I had never even heard of kefir until I read a blog about it a month ago. I love the taste ( I made berry smoothies and chocolate smoothies) and the fact that there are so many probiotics in it. It's a little bit of a pain to have to keep making it every other day or so, but it is worth the effort. This is also the most reasonable price I have found for kefir starter anywhere. June 11, 2013
Works great, effortless. This product is easy to add and obtain the product I wished to get. Service was great, priced best I could find, and it works as claimed. Can't get any better than that! April 10, 2013
Digestion churner! The taste grows on you and the benefits are well worth the effort. You can keep making more from the same batch up to 5 or 6 times. The yeast and bacterial cultures produced in the kefir really do aid my digestion processes. July 2, 2012
